Smart Electro-Mechanical Actuation for Drive-by-Wire Applications 2004-21-0045

This paper will describe the technical capabilities and vehicle design freedom made possible by drive-by-wire powertrain and chassis control systems, using SKF's Smart Electro-Mechanical Actuating Unit (SEMAU) technology. It will describe the advantages to the vehicle users and vehicle manufacturers of integrating electronic controls into the previously mechanically, hydraulically, and pneumatically actuated function and also show how mechatronic solutions can contribute to these advantages.
The paper will refer to the FILO, NOVANTA, and GM Hy-wire concept vehicles, which utilize “by-wire” technology, in order to illustrate these advantages.
